Meet The Team

Chris Freeman
Principal Partner

Chris is an experienced real estate investor with $20M in assets under management. His 20 years of real estate investment has focused exclusively on multifamily apartment buildings that can generate immediate cash flow. Over 26 years, he has been fortunate to experience financial success through high-tech sales and sales leadership. Working with companies like Juniper Networks, CIENA, Lucent, and Citrix, he has learned how to achieve a high level of performance in sales while re-deploying a portion of his commissions into cash flow generating real estate. Through a consistent process over time, Chris has created enough passive income to replace his high-tech sales income. This success had inspired Chris to create High Tech Freedom Capital and help his peers achieve their own personal success.
